Intern Waits For Coworkers to Leave For Lunch Before Stealing Back Pens

After months of working at her unpaid internship, Tania Lopez, CAS class of ‘19, decided to opt out of joining her coworkers for lunch and take back what was rightfully hers.

Swooping in as soon as the door shut, she walked desk to desk, collecting her Pilot G2’s. Upon returning, Tania’s boss instructed her to, “Just fill out these spread sheets right here and mark off – here I’ll show you, can I borrow a pen?”

Tania’s dissatisfaction with her workplace’s respect for pens prompted her to quit and find another internship that would find other subtle ways to suck up the little money she has.
